of it anyways. number one, ayman al zawahiri, the long-time number two to osama bin laden, communicating with an organization that's considered even more danger, nasir al wahsyshi. he's experimented with exploding clothes, clothes impregnanted with explosives, not to hide bombs but clothes that are bombs. but this isn't about an exploding shirt. this is said to be, according to sources that talked to nbc news, something big, that the head of al qaeda ordered to do something at the end of ramadan and that's now. when they talked about that, larry, the u.s. government listened and that's what kicked off the biggest alert since 9/11. >> steve handelsman over the weekend, congressman peter king, very knowledgeable guy, he said they picked up specific dates, specific dates. do we know anything about that? >> reporter: what we're told, larry, is that the conversation, and it may have just been one, it's such big guys and they so avoid communicating and if there was just one conversation it's because of they communicated and because of who they were. and the communication we're told specified t
leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >> al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is
is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> reporter: the white house aide said the cia director and other officials noted al qaeda affiliates were gaining steam. >> did he give the full picture to the people in the campaign about the threat of al qaeda, when that was his talking about again and again? >> it is indisputable the elimination of osama bin laden was a major accomplishment in the effort against al qaeda. we have been clear and the president has been clear that the threat from al qaeda very much remains. >> reporter: republicans know al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is its deadliest affiliate of all. >> al qaeda is in many ways stronger than 9/11, because it mutated and spread and come at us different directions. >> reporter: tense times in the mid east, where the u.s. is having talks in egypt with a jailed senior leader of muslim brotherhood, amid fears the government is losing control of key cities. >> that will allow the sinai to become as you said wild west of terrorism where groups like al qaeda and hamas can coordinate and plot attacks. >> reporter: as the egyptian govern
-election campaign. >> al qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> reporter: and months into the second term. >> al qaeda is a shell of its former self. >> reporter: in light of benghazi and the terror alert, graham says far from it. >> after benghazi, the al qaeda types are on steroids thinking we are weaking and they are stronger. >> is it fair to say al qaeda is on the path of defeat? >> most people who cover these issues understand that al qaeda core is the afghanistan/pack stain base. there's no question the al qaeda core has been greatly diminished. we have made clear over the past several years aqap, al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is a concern. >> reporter: al qaeda core is evolving. the man leading aqap is believed to be al qaeda's number two in command. >> i think what we have seen particularly since the death of osama bin laden is a metamorphosis of sorts within al qaeda. >> reporter: the question is whether the new al qaeda has the capacity to pull off a 9/11 style attack. the closing of embassies, some that are like bunkers a reminder the terror network ca
that they be questioned and placed in custody of u.s. officials without delay. osama bin laden had been criminally charged long before the september 11, 2001 terrorist attacks but was not apprehended. delays in apprehending the suspected benghazi killers will only put american lives at further and needless risk, closed quote. ab? >> i think that's true. it is one thing after the embarrassment of cnn hunting down the top suspect named by the fbi that the fbi couldn't locate. it is not surprising that they would come up with some form of charging, but charging is different from detaining this person or the several others under this sealed criminal indictment. i also think it is not surprising that september 11th is coming up and they were going to come up with something like this pretty soon, so between the cnn report and the year anniversary, something was going to happen, conveniently it is congressional recess. i think you'll see more revelations and developments coming out from the administration and what's interesting about the politics of this is that there is not a mood on capitol hill for moving to
. unfortunately what we have learned from al-qaeda and osama bin laden taken out, once you remove a top leader, this is decentral i'd network. >> heather: i was going to talk to you about, but sticking with the drone attacks. 15 of the attackers, 9 were saudis on 9/11 and seven were killed in that strike. you touched on this briefly. what role or saudi nationals playing in the latest terror threat? >> there have been long term problems of islamist activism. people would know osama bin laden originated out of saudi arabia base. it's not a surprise there would be activists and terrorists that would come out of that area but there has been active training in yemen and saudi side of the border for a long time just like the afghanistan-pakistan border. so the flow is troubling. we would like to believe the kingdom of saudi arabia would be an active partner in identifying and stopping that just as much as the government of yemen wants to. >> heather: so the u.s. navy adding to the planes to the hundreds of millions of dollars of aid we've given yemen. is that the best to stop al-qaeda there? >> i th
. these are armed attacks with r.p.g.'s, et cetera. it does make you wonder the kill of osama bin laden, a profound moral victory, didn't end the effectiveness of al qaeda. this is being manned by al zawahari who is at large. maybe we didn't end al qaeda by going -- >>steve: maybe we busted into the centralized al qaeda h.q. now it's fragmented all over. some are wondering whether or not you look at what happened in benghazi, where they killed four brave americans, clearly some sort of al qaeda-linked terror attack, and who's been held accountable. nobody. even though we knew, "the new york times" talked to some of the suspects and others have since then, we haven't done anything. now some are wondering is this a gross overreaction to some intel? susan rice, who is currently running the n.s.a., reportedly sees similarities trying to make sure this is not a repeat of what happened last year. here's lindsay graham and bill crystal. >> they are taking the right approach to this. benghazi was a complete failure. the threats were real there, reporting was real and we dropped the ball. we've learned from
to the dramatic move. turns out, it wasn't just an intercepted message between sth man who replaced osama bin laden and the yemen leader. there's a leader of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and what we had heard before is that there was a call between the two. but now we're hearing something different. in fact, it's an exclusive report that we're getting today that perhaps more than 20 al qaeda operatives from around the world were on some sort of conference call and we were able to listen in on that. one of the reporters who broke that story is joining us now. john is the senior correspondent for national security and politics for "newsweek" and the daily beat. i don't want to ruin your story but tell our viewers what they need to know about this supposed conference call. >> right. so we know that u.s. intelligence has been monitoring multiple threat streams and multiple communication streams between al qaeda's core leadership in pakistan and their associates in yemen but what we're able to report new today with that, the call that actually led the worldwide terror alert and the closing of
al qaeda, we decimated the top leadership and we killed osama bin laden and the main number two or number three leaders. i don't think anything he said was inaccurate. the reality is al qaeda has been reconstituted in different satellite organizations across the region. so we have al qaeda in libya, for example. al qaeda in the sudan, for example. so it's not just the old al qaeda in afghanistan or iraq. al qaeda is taking different forms and shapes and that's the reality that the state department -- >> repeat my question. he said we decimated al qaeda, okay? he said they were not the threat that they once were, however you wish to paraphrase it. our clips were pretty specific. have they now, thankfully, changed their position about the al qaeda threat? is that what you hear about this announcement? >> no. this is an administration that's been ever vigilant in fighting the threat since they came in office. they were focused about getting osama bin laden from the beginning and they've been executing drone strikes at a rate faster than the bush administration and by the way, that'
cruikshank says there's a new twist: al qaeda's leader in yemen-- once osama bin laden's personal secretary -- is reportedly now the second in command in the organization world wide. emily schmidt: is this an his mark? paul cruickshank: it may well be this a naser al- wuhayshi's coming out party as the number two of al qaeda. the plot was in this works as this announcement was going to come out that he was playing this bigger role in they al qaeda global terrorist network. president obama stuck to his planned weekend schedule--golfing, and going to camp david for his birthday. a white house official says the president will continue to be updated about the threat through the weekend. the white house says it will notcomment on intelligence in this case-- particularly as it relates to a new york times report that says some of this intelligence came from intercepted electronic communications between senior al qaeda operatives. emily schmidt kron4 news. the obama administration is overturning a looming ban on older apple iphones and ipads. the ban was put in place by the international trade comm
organization. obama and his administration love to brag about the killing of osama bin laden but they're not willing to acknowledge that osama bin laden is a product of the muslim brotherhood. president obama went to egypt in 2009 right at the beginning of his presidency to talk about religious tolerance and how we all need to live together and egypt was the gateway to the muslim world for a better relationship and now that christian churches are burning he's not standing up for christianity in the way that he should be. >> let me show you something. i should have thought of this earlier. this is from "the blaze" today. this is john kerry today. that's john kerry. he's kite boarding. do you ever go kite boarding? i don't even know what that is. there is our secretary of state. he's kite boarding and president of the united states is out there swinging a golf club every two seconds. >> don't forget in this day, the president can sign a law in boston. he can sign an executive order in california. he can sign a law -- so when he brings with him an entire apparatus when he travels. >> egy
of lebanon. meanwhile, osama bin laden was watching these events unfold and essentially learned the lesson that america was cowardly, that they couldn't take a punch in the nose and that emboldened him to later on launch the attacks that we know he launched. i keep coming back to that because to me it seems like we have to figure out what type of strikes, what targets to strike. but isn't the bottom line here that the president said we have this red line of chemical weapons and if you cross that there will be enormous consequences. if we fail to deliver those enormous consequences, we lose all of our credibility in the reason gone, we lose all of our ability to act as a deterrent. iran is watching this and learning perhaps the same lessons that osama bin laden learned in 1983. >> krystal, the fact is international law was violated. the president's statement of crossing the red line occurred six to eight months ago. syria's used chemical weapons some months ago. in fact, some reports indicate that he's used this some number of times, even 100 times on a much limited scale. the red line bein
after osama bin laden. why would you do that? >> storm: because he was born in... just after 9/11, and osama bin laden was a hero. he was a muslim soldier who stood up against the big satan of america. >> logan: you know, many americans listening to that would be offended? >> storm: well, i'm telling the truth. >> logan: but over the years, storm began to have doubts about his faith. as dramatic as his original conversion was, so was his break with islam. this is how he explains it: >> storm: i typed on my keyboard, on my laptop, "contradictions in the koran." that's the first time i ever done that. what i believed in for those ten years suddenly was just ripped away from me. i discovered that it was all fake. i made a decision not to be muslim. >> logan: you can't go from believing all of this for ten years to instantly not believing any of it, right? >> storm: you know... you know what? it can happen. that can actually happen. it was a roller coaster, a emotional roller coaster. >> logan: because you were giving up everything? >> storm: yes, of course. >> logan: so you made a
. that's where osama bin laden was born and raised. this is something, it's an organization with a lot of offshoots. it's a dispersed organization. it's intended to function that way so that eliminating one or two or even many of its top leaders don't prevent the rest of the organization from operating. and that's been true from its inception. >> that is not very encouraging. let me ask you this. as long as we're doing this reality test, and we all should be aware this is why we're talking about this as our lead story, what do you think is happening here at home? is al qaeda on our shores? >> well, i think this is one of the risks that we have to take seriously. particularly now in the wake of the boston marathon bombing on april 15th. the government has not said that there's a risk here. but you have to believe that if al qaeda thought it could strike again in america, it would certainly like to try and do so. this is something that i think we should be paying close attention to. i think it should heighten our appreciation of our intelligence gathering assets like the electronic surve
was the president doing the night osama bin laden was taken out by navy s.e.a.l.s. he had a chance to speak recently, had interesting information about what the president was doing. take a listen. >> most people were down in the situation room, he is like i am not going to be down there, i can't watch this entire thing, so he, myself, pete, the white house photographer, we must have played 15 games of spades. >> there you go. there's a picture of the president during this pivotal moment in american history. >> begs the question what he was doing the night of benghazi. maybe he was playing spades, cards upstairs. >> he was bowling. >> eric bolling. you're next. >> i'm next. if you have a few minutes, go online, check out "the new york times." rarely do i say that, but this is amazing, unease at the clinton foundation over finance and ambition. outlines questionable financial dealings, hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. cronyism. by the way, this clinton foundation may be the headquarters for hillary's 2016 presidential run. worth the time to read it. interesting read. >> also done remarkably g
on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> there are reports, too, the leader who replaced osama bin laden has given two speeches saying the muslim world needs to unite, said he disagrees with the u.s. policy going on in egypt as well. also, this is the 27th day of ramadan, also known as the night of power, the time when moham d mohammed -- if you're a believer, when mohammed got the first versus for the koran. >> the massive prison brakes across the region. >> not everybody believes al qaeda is on the run. >> apparently al qaeda doesn't agree. they strung more than 1,000 people from prisons in various countries. >> last week. >> 1200 prisoners in a single break. >> benghazi. >> how do you do that? >> a massive one at abu ghraib prison in iraq, too. here is the general on the al qaeda threat that we face. >>. >> certainly after 9/11 we clearly had al qaeda on the run because we responded to quickly to that threat and intercepted a lot of other threats and killed a bunch of leaders in the process. they have had time to reg
think that's been the situation since well before osama bin laden and his key deputies were killed. al qaeda and affiliated similar networks continue to grow around the globe. jenna: speaking of the president, we have a sound bite from a little more recent than last year talking about the war on terror and one of the president's big speeches about foreign policy. let's take a listen to that. i'll get your reaction. >> today osama bin laden is dead and so are most of his top lieutenants. our homeland is more secure. a few of our troops are in harm's way and over the next 19 months, they'll continue to come home. our alliances is strong and so is our standing in the world. we are safer because of our efforts. jenna: that's what our viewers have heard from the president. this is the paradigm that the president was describing to us. no large scale attacks, yet we're seeing the shutting of our embassies overseas, we're told not to travel for at least another several weeks and this is all moving up until the next anniversary of 9/11. so what should we think about our safety? >> look. i have
to coordinate, and if osama bin laden was calling someone in the united states, we n't his stockbroker.hat because people need to know that the government is not going to gary all this information on them and one day in the future use it against them or have it leaked. this is a legitimate issue, and balancing those is not easy, and i think what we're struggling with as a country, how to protect americans and also protect their individual liberties and private expectations. it's not a trivial issue. >> neil: looks like republican are having a hard time reconciling those two extremes to hear senator paul tell it, if we're getting these constant reports out of the nsa that it went beyond just collecting over 115 million american phone records, to the latest news that is was every e-mail, every site folks went on so much information, so fast, they really couldn't even hold it that long because it was too massive to hold. that does raise the kind of concerns that senator paul has had, that chris christie seems to dismiss. >> but first of all, of course, we always need to be reviewing the s
these men osama bin laden's successor and the head. the decision to close u.s. all over the world has been met by bipartisan approval. they had to refrain the often repeated campaign claim that al qaeda was on the run. >> not sure about that. thank you so much doug luzader live for us this morning. >> now to an extreme weather lart for you within the past hour. hen the storm could be hitting the land by the end of next week. for more we turn to weather. >> 75 miles per hour maximum sustained winds. this is a concern. the one bit of good news is that we expect the storm system to continue to weaken over the next several days. take a look where it is over the open water continues to move west ward and will be moving over much cooler water. the colder temperatures will help weaken the storm system. it should be a tropical storm as we head into thursday. by this weekend coming up on saturday by about 8:00 p.m. it should be weakening into just a depression before impacting sections of hawaii. it is before impacting land. across parts of the u.s. we are lacking at areas of showers and thundersto
to what it was with osama bin laden. you got this global entity of cells, which may or may not be linked together, may be working entirely independently. very, very hard to take on an enemy like that. >> this is the problem with the war on terror, get osama bid laden and possible for new groups and cells to spring up. the situation we got we were able to have a return to normal where terrorism became a low-level threat, one of the things the president said in his interview with jay leno tonight, americans are much more likely to die in a car accident than terror attack. that's healthy the way they think of foreign policy and if there is a big event that happens in the middle east, i think it could change that in a negative way and force us, draw us back in. >> it has to be noted for the talk about the nsa and invasion of people's pra vice and so on and so on they are successful in a huge afrosty. >> think not why we've been successful in preventing come mess tick terrier -- >> do we know that? >> i wouldn't want to yield my personal or public serk ke secu. we see embassy bombings and ter
. >> thank you. >>> what president obama did on the day of the raid that killed osama bin laden. have you heard this? have you seen this famous photo of the president when the raid was taking place? his former body man tells a lunch at the ucla the president wanted a distraction while events were unfolding. he spent part of the day playing cards in the private dining room. >> most people were down in the situation room. he said i'm not going to be here. i can't watch this entire thing. he, myself, the photographer, we played, we must have played 15 hands, 15 games of spades. >> he called it a very, very long day. >> can you imagine? >> that's how you decompress. >> the night before the comedy routine. this alternative world and lifestyle going on while one of the most intricate military operations in the world. fascinating. >>> ten minutes after the hour, coming up here -- >> i believe in the power of forgiveness. i believe in the power of redempti redemption. >> jesse jackson jr. is going to spend months in jail from spending money from his own campaign. is his political career really ov
administration after the bombing of our embassies, osama bin laden concluded america was unserious with the course. three years later, we had 9/11. >> you have to ask the question, is limited punitive strike worse than doing nothing. i am not sure that's true. >> then there's the libya example, they sent in 110 tomahawk missiles, british and u.s. war ships, then there was a nato enforced fly zone for six months, which ended with a civil war with gadhafi being deposed. the problem with syria is more complicated because the rebel situation is more complicated. and you've got the potentially unsecure wmd of chemicals. >> we're going to continue this. final word on this topic? >> i think it is a question of are you serious or not. assad will understand it is a punitive strike, he emerges from the smoke essentially unhurt strategically, he wins this round. and it will have been for nothing and risking all of the things that nina talked about needlessly. >>> next up, continuing this topic, how to fight another war, and the push back coming not very loud but still coming. max and penny ke
. that is more grief than osama bin laden? i don't think so, rush. coming up. why the north carolina governor thinks he can give cookies to his opponents after lying to them in the campaign and signing a new very restrictive abortion law. the governor crossed the street, carrying a plate of cookies and reportedly told a woman "these are for you, god bless you." protesters placed the plate of cookies back at the mansion gates with a note reading governor mccrory, we'll take women's health over cookies. protesters say governor mccrory is breaking a promise he clearly made on the campaign trail last year. >> this past year, state lawmakers passed the women's right to no act, adding legislation making it more restrictive to get abortions in north carolina. if you're elected governor, what restrictions on abortion would you agree to sign. i'll start with you, mr. mccrory. >> none. >> all right. joining me now are elise hogue, i wonder why would the governor in that debate give such a clear answer, if this is what he was going to end up doing. what was he thinking back then? >> you know, i think he
. so when you kill a leader, harris, like osama bin laden, the movement goes on. >> you echo each other a little bit. but you say you go a step further, the enemy is building, will not be deterred. what's happening. >> true, harris. actually, the general is right, it is about an ideology, no doubt. and one more point, the administration unfortunately and its advisers have refused to engage this ideology, to confront this ideology. from memos the past few years, says there is no ideology. if you actually don't recognize it exists, it will continue to exist and recruit more people. as important also are the forces that we should have allied ourselves with against the jihadists. look what's happening in egypt and tunesia and libya. who is demonstrating on the streets against the islamists and their allies and the jihadists? the youth, women, minorities. we didn't have a strategy to ally with them the last ten years. by now, we have anti-jihadist and anti-forces. >> part of the ideology, is it religious, one group against the world? >> it is perceived by the jihadists that they are the ones
to osama bin laden in pakistan directly to the top al qaeda official in yemen or whether it was more of a roundabout relayed communication. in any event, regardless of how it was constructed, it's the wording that so alarmed officials in which the leader of al qaeda in pakistan has basically given the order or approval of what the two are believed to be saying is a significant event, a big terror attack that would have significant strategic consequences, as the way they described it. and that is what has led to all the changes that we've seen in the past several days. >> let me play, pooeete, what congressman peter king said on "morning joe" this morning. >> this one was so precise as to the nature of the attack. there were some dates given in there. the sources were so credible that there's no doubt -- >> all the threats overseas, right? no domestic threats? >> no, i would not say that. it does not say where the threat is going to be. it could be anywhere in the world. >> anywhere in the world, pete. we know that. back to this intercepted communication, how was this information made
're trying to prevent future attacks, or get people responsible for attacks. we did not get osama bin laden by having -- >> let nicole -- 30 seconds. go ahead. >> you know what? he goofed on benghazi. the whole administration has been putting this under the rug. they don't know, their whatever from a hole in the ground and i'm tired of seeing what this administration has done with benghazi. it is insulting. >> noel, leslie, and i got your name right there. still ahead, tonight on this special edition of has nnnity, sean's interview. first, a government watch dog investigation into planned parenthood. i'll explain why the nation's largest abortion provider is being accused of wasting your hard earned tax dollars also. >>> we need your help in pick the video of the day. option one tonight. the hilarious video. you see it. of a drunk dancer and what happens when he is put to the sobriety test. if you want to see his moves, if you want to see his moves, logon and cast your vote. i'm beth... and i'm michelle. and we own the paper cottage. it's a stationery and gifts store. anything we purchase f

with singing songs to osama bin laden and the 9/11 terror attacks. there's been a radical change in a lot of the makeup of the armed opposition which just doesn't look like the peaceful protests that we saw 2 1/2 years ago starting, calling for democracy and freedom after 40 years of dictatorships fr from the assad leadership. >> where does that leave the assad regime right now. fred flepleitgen, a short time , ben wedeman was speaking to members in the regime who told him they were relieve bid this delay, that president obama has put the brakes on at least for ten days asking congress for a vote. the syrian regime, he says, relieved and perhaps even planning a new offensive to squeeze in there over the next several days. before you left, what did you see in terms of movement in the regime's assets and what have you heard over the last several days? >> the regime has been stepping up its effort, especially in the damascus area over the past couple of days. the interesting thing was it really coincided with that alleged chemical weapons attack. many people on the ground were talking to us
by surprise. da-da-da-da-da. osama bin laden was taken by surprise. saddam hussein was taken by surprise. anthony weiner was taken by surprise. you punked out. - i did not punk out. we're going to have to agree to disagree on that one. but i will have you know that i had plans that night. i was going to go out with sophia. - that italian woman? - yes! - you've been trying to go out with her for three months. - uh! - why would you cancel a date with her to go to a baseball game? - because you had two diamond club tickets. i mean, i may get another chance with this chick. when's the next time i'm going to have a crack at those seats? - i'm sorry, man. - no, you're not. you're apologizing. but if i'm not able to hook up with sophia again, then you'll be sorry. - come on, man. what are you-- - what is up with this stupid website? how are we supposed to listen to the radio when we can't even get it on our computer? - i know, but don't worry; dad said he'll be back soon. - hey, guys. - hi, dad. - i just want you to know... that your problems are solved. - he's just-- - that's great. - bam! ha
qaeda. sources are telling cnn that osama bin laden's successor, ayman al-zawahiri sent a letter saying, do something. the chatter set off all of this. nick payton walsh is watching this developing. nick, it has been five days since we first became aware of this terrorist threat and what we have seen today, the threat is clearly still ongoing. so why else would the u.s., why would briton, those folks be getting out of yemen? >> reporter: well, certainly the threat whilst being starved, anything from west africa, bangladesh to yemen, even though they thought it would be last sunday, it's ongoing. no one is clear where this is coming from. the state department is continuing to evaluate new information. that withdrawal of diplomatic staff you've been talking about, that has been emotional for a couple of days. the u.s. did repeat its normal travel advice to most americans to get out of yemen and never travel there anyway. a certain escalation on their part today. many asking is it possibly the drone strikes overnight against militants in yemen that may have contributed to that that now bri

the pakistani physician who famously helped u.s. forces find osama bin laden and was promptly imprisoned by pakistani s. in the face of that, this administration sat idle and did nothing to get him sprung. there is an informal contract we make between the people who help us and other countries and the united states. we are in these two cases falling down and not upholding our end. it's shameful. >> meyer said it here on fox and says it in his new book, i couldn't have gotten out of this firefight without his help. he helped me carry guys out, he helped me save american lives. to turn our backs on them, he know where he's living. we know we could swoop in and get this guy out of there and help him and get him to the united states. why this visa is being slow walked is beyond me. >> it says that -- i'm reading this article now, they've signed off on the application, a general did, general dunford, then it was green lighted by the u.s. embassy in kabul and then the application was sent to the u.s. state department visa's department for vetting according to the person who wrote this article.
